Book Nook: Who’s That I Hear?

Children can’t fall fast asleep when things go “bump” in the night. Is it the wind? The creaking floors? A monster? Or just their imagination?

In the delightful new children’s book, Who’s That I Hear?, from award-winning author DJ Hill, our young hero is unsettled by unfamiliar sounds in his bedroom.
